Oscar Valdés Jr. "Leyenda Viva" 2010 - Cuba




I took this photo of Oscar Valdés
in Venezuela 1978

Oscar Valdés con Diakara, Cuba
2005

Valdés Jr. and Sr.

For me, this is one of the nicest recordings out of Cuba for 2010. Featuring El Maestro... Oscar Valdés Jr., former singer with the seminal band Irakere, here with his band, Diakara.
A very nicely designed 2 CD digipak, with great photos.
Every one of the 10 songs are excellent.
(Least expensive at Museo Del Disco in Miami)

Dáme Bombón

Africa

Mi Habana Vieja

Mogün Maribó
